More than 150 Palestinians have been killed since the marches began.

An Israeli soldier and a bystander were injured in a stabbing attack in the West Bank.

Palestinians in the northern West Bank say a woman has been killed after being struck in the head by a stone thrown by Israeli settlers.

Al-Rawbi, 47 and a mother of eight, was pronounced dead at hospital late on Friday from a head injury sustained in the stone-throwing incident, according to Palestinian news agency Wafa.
